08:18 AM ET 03.22 | After bowing out of the big dance, both Marcus Smart's hand and pride hurt. Smart sported an icepack atop his injured wrist and the burden of responsibility atop his wide shoulders. His Cowboys had just lost 68-55 to Oregon in an NCAA Tournament game Thursday that in all likelihood was his OSU adieu. And Smart, who played bold, if not well, blamed himself. "I definitely wish I could have done more for my team," Smart said. "I feel like I let my team down." ... The Cowboy point guard surely is headed for the NBA. I hope he stays, because OSU hoops is a lot more fun with players like him. But all great players these days go pro at first chance. Which would mean the Smart Era era ended just like it came.
